This model is the complete blueprint for our house, which is in progress now. The design is a work in progress, and grows more detailed as needed to answer "what do I do next?" while we build. The timber frame is modeled exactly, to the 1/16th of an inch, since it was used to create shop drawings for the timber framers (the one part of the house we're not doing ourselves). Our straw bales are 3-string, roughly 48" x 22" x 15". The "Norm Blocks" are funky fiberglass-impregnated aerated concrete blocks, about 8" x 16" x 24", which are used in the mining industry for temporary ventilation shafts. Each weighs about 40 pounds. These were rejects we salvaged. #bale #frame #house #passive #solar #straw #straw_bale #timber #timber_frame #timberframe
